    This is my final figure based on the Miniart Flying Ace series. The kit depicts Ernst Udet, but as he is dressed in the uniform of the Wurtemmberg Reserve Division, I decided to depict a generic officer from that unit.


    As you, can see, I made fewer changes with this one; just the head, shoulder boards, and the addition of a couple of items of equipment.

    For what it's worth, here are the three figures together:

    Hi Peter another fine example of what you can do with Miniart and that's a nice group of WW1 figures the you have there.
  4. MoboSchreuder A Fixture

    Looking great and very nice paintwork

    Hi Peter

    Another good paint , like the colour variation on him

    The 3 look really good together , show well what can be achieved by converting ......well worth clicking on image to view larger

    Thanks for sharing

    Look forward to next

    Happy benchtime

    This wee fellow has a certain look about him Peter with that glance up to the left. Pose is nicely pulled of and looks very casual with open water bottle. Really like it!
    What head did you use in this chap mate?
  7. Peter Day PlanetFigure Supporter

    Many thanks chaps. Glad you like him.

    Mike - Interesting that you've picked up on his diminutive stature, which proves that Miniart have managed to convey the fact that Udet was 5'3'' and actually below the minimum height required for enlistment. The kit head was pretty poor, with the mould seam running down the middle of the face, so this is by Dragon with an Eduard cap. The right hand and water bottle is by CGS and there are also Verlinden and Tamiya parts.

    Morning Peter

    Quite a trio of conversions and well painted with some excellent head swaps too.

    What will be next on the bench, more figures or busts?

    Hope your weather problems get sorted soon and you still have plenty of spares to enhance your next piece.

    Off for my booster jab this morning, so I'll be set for the next 6 months.

    Have a good weekend

    Steve - Morning. I really enjoyed working on this trio - always a challenge using cheap plastic kits. I am going to work on a Mitches bust next, though the amount of clean-up required has been a bit disheartening. Happy booster!

    Mike - Many thanks.
